2016 Wooden Dolly Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Aromas of pineapple, vanilla-crème, and brûléed lemon mingle on the nose with spice notes, orange peel, and freshness suggestive of wet limestone after a spring shower. Tropical fruit cascades over the palate interwoven with citrus, pineapple, sweet wood notes, and lively hints of green apple on the back end. Bracing acidity and tongue tingling minerality provide balance and lift, and lend an overall sense of structure and agility the to the big fruit elements. From novice to master sommelier, there’s something for everyone to love in a wine that pays notable homage to the Grand Cru Burgunian style and the old world.
